Underwater and ROV-friendly Saws

Understanding the unique challenges cutting underwater, Bluegrass designs and builds customized diamond wire saws for each project emphasizing robust equipment, ease of operation and simplicity of deployment.

All Bluegrass underwater saws can be fitted with a hydraulic clamping system, with a diver clamping system, and/or with ROV attachments and connections (a Hot Stab Panel). Designing and fabricating our own saws means they can be serviced by our technicians in the field, and specialty parts can be immediately fabricated. In addition to reliable equipment, the continuous loop diamond wire we use has a proven track record which means predictable outcomes for our customers.

Designed for zero-visibility waters:

• Wide berth on hydraulic clamps means divers can successfully ring structure faster.
• Large berth allows saw to loosely ring structure topside, prior to deployment, then clamp into place at desired depth.
• Hydraulic clamp is self-centering. If ringed off-center, saw self-adjusts to center for clamping.
• Operate at depths to 4,000 ft

Our wide range of sub-sea saws can either be installed by divers to depths of -300′ (91.4 meters) while being monitored and hydraulically powered from the platform or barge, or they can be installed and powered at any depth by working class ROV’s. Used for pulling casings on P&A jobs, our single and double pin drills are designed to be maneuverable, quickly adjusted and to reduce down time between cuts.
